You can get all of that for free with an $100 purchase!
I have to say I love the Designer Series Paper in this bundle. The colors in this pack are Basic Black, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Shaded Spruce. I love all those colors and they go so well together soI decided to use it as the focal point of this card.
To make this card I first cut out the Granny Apple Green piece on the front of my card using the die set called Nature’s Thoughts. Then I layered the background pieces onto a Basic White card base. I added the small strip of Shaded Spruce to separate the two different designs. Then I took a piece of Basic White Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and colored it using my dark Shaded Spruce Blends. I love Blends because they can color so many things like ribbon, images and embellishments. I tied that around the card base. Then I layered the Granny Apple Green piece on top using Dimensionals. Lastly, I took the sentiment from the Friendly Hello stamp set and covered the “friend” part using Washi Tape. I inked the stamp up with Shaded Spruce ink, took off the Washi Tape and stamped it on a piece of Basic White card stock. This is called masking and you can do it with almost any stamp.
